I’ve never read the book, so I can’t say how faithful of an adaptation it is. The first I heard about Twilight was at the San Diego Comicon this year. I had gone to a panel to see a preview of Push which stars Dakota Fanning and Chris Evans. The same panel featured a couple other films and casts, and one of them was Twilight. As soon as the cast started coming out all the girls in the audience started screaming. They showed a clip and it looked pretty good, but the cast seemed pretty clueless.
We’re showing the film at one of the theatres I work at, and I watched it tonight. There was a good plot and interesting characters, though the pacing seemed pedantic and there really wasn’t any growth during the film. It’s no Lord of the Rings nor Harry Pothead. Heck, it’s not even Lost Boys. I did like the mythology though and will watch the sequel.
3 out of 5 stars
